Premise

A stark and moody Emmy-winning drama about an innocent man sentenced to die for his wife's murder who eludes the obsessed Lt. Gerard to chase down the one-armed man who's the real killer. Superbly written, performed and paced, the episodes track Richard Kimble through a series of gripping near-captures, often set in a hauntingly realized small-town America where sympathetic strangers (frequently beautiful women) risk themselves to save his life. The final episode drew a then-record audience.
